SAN JOSE, California — Sanna Nyassi scored in the 75th minute and the San Jose Earthquakes beat the MLS-leading Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 on Saturday night.

Vancouver blocked the first two shot attempts of the sequence, and then Nyassi smashed the left-footed strike from near the penalty spot into the left corner of the goal. It was his first career goal with the Earthquakes (3-3-0).

David Bingham earned his first career shutout without a save while the Quakes snapped an eight-game winless streak against the Whitecaps (4-2-1).

Vancouver was playing its second game of the week after a 2-2 draw with the Columbus Crew on Wednesday night.

Pedro Morales and Adam Jahn both received red cards in the 88th minute for a brief altercation. Jahn went down, and Morales kicked at the ball near Jahn's midsection after the whistle. Jahn kicked back at Morales' shins in retaliation.
